Book Review - He's No Saint by AJ Harmon

he's no saintHe's No Saint by AJ Harmon

Becoming a priest wasn’t his plan, but when Tyler Oswin suffers a tragic loss, the safety of the church seemed the perfect place to find solace and peace. Now Father Hugh, he works and tries to do good but his carnal nature always seems to get in the way of fully committing to his new profession. Amy Lansing felt lost as a teenager after her father died and deals with her loneliness by joining the convent. She’s not living - she’s hiding. Holding onto the past is keeping her from dealing with her future and when she meets Father Hugh, her heart starts beating again, despite knowing that there can never be anything more than a friendship between them. With all that has happened in the past, and the difficulty of their current situation, it seems that neither Tyler nor Amy will find the happily ever after they are both desperately searching for. But love has a way of bringing them together, only to find that his sins from the past will threaten their future. He’s No Saint is a love story for all who believe in fighting for love. It is a stand-alone novel written by AJ Harmon, author of the best-selling series First Class Novels. “Phenomenal” and “Breathtakingly beautiful” is how this romance novel has been described by readers.


REVIEW


He’s No Saint is a wonderful story.  The author does a wonderful job of developing the characters and the plot and creating a believable story that is easy to get sucked into.  I actually didn’t want to like the story because I’d never read a story about a Priest falling in love that I found believable or realistic, however this is done perfectly.

***possible spoilers***


The ending.  Well, it changed things.  I didn’t see it coming at all.  It fits with everything else that happened, however I think it has the possibility of angering a lot of readers.  Generally in romance novels there is an unspoken promise to the reader that the couple will get a HEA.  There is an argument that the promise was fulfilled, but not traditionally and I’m not sure what kind of reaction that will get from readers.

OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
